(Greek: phyton = plant, therapeia = care)
Herbal medicine is one of the oldest health sciences and is found in all cultures around the globe, including Western, Chinese, Ayurvedic and Aboriginal societies. As the oldest, and still the most widely used system of treatment in the world today, it is Herbal Medicine – medicine made exclusively from plants. It is also the teaching of medical plants used as medicines. The whole plant or parts of them, such as leaf, flower, root, etc. is used and processed into medicines and teas.
Nowadays this experience based medicine is illuminated from many angles, even from a scientific perspective.
Phytotherapeutic/herbal remedies usually have little to no side effects when professionaly handled.
A balanced diet is important for health and well being.
Both the Western and the Chinese dietetics offer ideas for an individually balanced diet.
I am experienced in offering specific diet plans for patients with special requirements:
- May it be for people who want to lose weight, or
- Professional sports people,
or people in specific stages of life such as:
- Pregnant women and
- Women with Menopause issues.
A change in diet is often unavoidable when health problems such as;
- high bloot pressure,
- COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease also known as the smokers lung, since in 90% of the cases smoking is the cause),
- Diabethes mellitus,
- kidney disease,
- overweight etc.
have already occurred.
I will support and guide my patients in finding the right way to go with a healthy diet.
